A case-control study was conducted to assess the quantitated importance of the subtle symptoms of threatened preterm delivery from October, 1993, to April, 1997, in 9 municipalities of the province of Camagüey. 364 cases and 654 controls were studied based on the official registries of perinatal care complemented with a survey. Univariate and bivariate methods and the multivariate of logistic regression were used to process the data. The presence of the subtle symptoms was characterized by: increase or changes in the vaginal losses, lumbar pain or pressure in the hips, low abdominal pain, uterine contractions and abdominal gripes.
